Item arrived today

Ok, I was lucky, 6 bucks on Amazon, no problem there.
Hardcover at 25 bucks though, certainly not.
It is 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches. Not quite 1/2 thick in softcover, likely half inch in hardcover.

It's a compact, well done product. Almost no margin at the top, little at the spine, a little at the bottom. Maybe that's the printer. Essentially speaking, no wasted page.
This is perhaps the best effort so far, at making a complete OSE OSR BECMI wannabe item yet if you want it taking as little of your table as possible.
Very readable, well organized what you expect from a publisher that is making a reiteration of a 50 year old game.

hmm, do I need it? Not really.
Is it worth it? 25 bucks, unlikely.
Amazon just sold it to me a softcover for 6 bucks.

Where it sits on the timeline as measured against the other listing here at Drivthru is unknown to me. It might be an earlier printing.
Does that matter? Probably not. They are after all, BECMI type offerings.

There appears to me a lot of Whitebox titles listed, and I have no idea where they fit into the scheme of things.

This is an outstanding product. The system, the layout everything is so easy to find and use. I have bought this system for several friends and everyone who tries it loves it after spending time with it. Well done everyone involved

Is this updated 2.1 version of the rules announced on your Seattle Hills Games blog on April 22, 2020? While I understand it only corrects about 4 minuscule errata, I'd prefer the latest version of this great game. Thanks!

Book is great stuff and bound tightly. I highly recommend this version if the red dragon cover isn't to your taste.

HI Charlie,

Does the hardcover version here have the dust jacket as well. All the ones I got from Lulu have dust jackets and I am not a fan of dustjackets?

I just bought the book and got it. No dust jacket the art is on the cover itself.

Is this art available for download an alt cover to the PDF?

I have the original red dragon cover with black and white interior. Is this really a full color version of the book now?
Customer avatar
Charlie M December 09, 2017 11:20 pm UTC
No this is not full color. It's the same interior as the red dragon cover.

Ok thank you. You might want to get that fixed though. It says "Hardcover Color Book (Premium Heavyweight) (5.5" x 8.5")"
Customer avatar
Charlie M December 18, 2017 5:42 pm UTC
That part is actually correct. It does use the "hardcover Color Book (premium heavyweight)" option for print. Which is the best printing option that OBS offers. Better paper and offset printing, so the black ink is heavier and looks better. There is also some red text, here and there, in the book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
